Outbreak Science

Outbreak Science; A nonprofit to advance the science of outbreak response.

Recent epidemics of H1N1 influenza, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), chikungunya, Ebola, and Zika, highlight the global importance of infectious disease outbreaks. The scale, speed, and diversity of these epidemics demand an equally scalable, rapid, and agile scientific response to prevent and control their impact.

Outbreak Science, a nonprofit founded in 2016, aims to support open data, open access, and open science in the context of epidemic responses.
